Last Spring the Janus Forum held a debate about restricting speech on college campuses. Jonathan Rauch, Contributing Editor at The Atlantic & Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institute argued it should. In the debate, Rauch discussed the marketplace of ideas as it relates to progress for the LGBTQ+ community. However, a recent court decision in Tampa sided with a christian advocacy group in determining that a ban on conversion therapy violates the free speech component of the first amendment– a clear source of tension in the argument made by Rauch.
